Question about 2002 Chrysler PT Cruiser

Open Question

We purchased a 2002 pt cruiser with a power moon roof, we were assured it didn't leak. However, that was a lie, we've discovered it does leak, alot, on the front passenger side. We have removed the entire headliner and we've found water stain both on the headliner and slight corrosion on the trough and support mechanism indicating water entering onto the passenger seat and floorboard. We've probed the draintube and found no obstruction. From the stains on the headliner and the aluminum framework indicates it was leaking at that point, with headliner off we poured water on it and found it was dripping at the front corner where the trough and track meet on the trackside, the water doesn't even get to the drain tube. We were told replacing the glass seal would not solve the problem. Please does anyone have a solution!

SOURCE: how to clean seats

I ALSO HAVE A 2006 PT AND WORK FOR A CHRYSLER DEALER. THEY USED THIS MATERIAL IN PT AND JEEP AND IT IS TERRIBLE TO CLEAN. THE ONLY PRODUCT THAT WE FOUND THAT WORKS IS WOOLITE CARPET CLEANER IT IS CARRIED BY WAL-MART IN A GRAY SPRAY BOTTLE AND SAYS PET + OXYGEN ON THE LABEL. IT IS WITH CARPET CLEANERS NOT AUTO. YOU NEED A MEDIUM BRISLE BRUSH AND NEED TO DO THE COMPLETE SEAT YOU CANNOT SPOT CLEAN THESE IT MAKES IT WORSE. AFTER THERE ALL CLEAN AND DRIED GOOD ADD A COAT OF FABRIC PROTECTOR IT WILL KEEP THEM CLEAN A LITTLE LONGER

SOURCE: Water on floor board

The drain tubes are a definate possibility, but, usually you will see a water mark on the headliner. The panels are fairly easy to remove, if it has assist handles you will need to remove the rubber or plastic plugs that cover the screws, then remove the screw and gently pull out and upward on the panel, it has metal clips that snap into the sheet metal but it also will have a plastic hook to locate the bottom of the panel, you don't want to break this. This will allow you to check the drain tubes. Also don't rule out the windsheild itself. Especailly if it has ever been replaced. Sometimes there is an air bubble in the sealer/adhesive tube they use to secure the windsheild, if not caught and filled in it will cause a water and or air leak (this happens from the factory too).

SOURCE: sun/moon roof switches

The switches are removable without taking out the headliner. If they have never been taken down then it might be a little difficult but the switches shouls snap right out.

SOURCE: a/c water leaking onto floor on passenger side,

In that case either the drain tube is partially clogged or the drip pan has a leak. Clean the hose with a long tie-zip from underneath the car and look for the origin of the leak under the dash - if you can see it you can plug it.

It is going to be the seal in your moon roof. Unless you have holes in the top of your car you can be sure that the water is coming from there.

I have a 2002 pt cruiser and my ac is not colling


Your car ls most likely low on refrigerant. If you're handy, you can get a recharge kit at an auto parts store to recharge your AC system. If not, most service stations will recharge the system for under $100 but be aware that they are mandated by law to detect any leaks prior to recharging the system. If a leak is detected, they must repair the leak prior to recharge which would lead to a more expensive repair. Best of luck.

2002 Toyota RAV4 passenger side floor Water


Hi, we also have a 2002 Toyota Rav4 and developed a leak in the front driver's side of the car. After much research, we discovered that the drain wells from our sun/moon roof were clogged. If you have one of these, I suggest that you open the sun roof and look carefully. You will notice some tiny little holes in front and in the rear of the sun/moon roof tracks. Over time, these become clogged with dust and debris. You need to find a long, sturdy piece of thin wire and run it down the holes. To test if you have properly unclogged these, take a small amount of water and pour it down the holes. You should see water coming out of the drain wells under the car around the rear of the front tires. Hope this helps.
